Rainx or Carrand or Micro fiber tech makes one.
Do a search on micro fiber wash mitt.
Also search on Walmart they have 10 pages of many colors including tan.

Closest I've found to cream is a very pale yellow. I found it in the car washing section of an auto parts store. A car washing mitt

I just ordered a few from fly fish food. If I like them I will for sure look for a mit, or mop. Most likely not, but have you caught any carp on them !

I don't usually fish for carp. I use the ones in the picture mainly for trout and sometimes for pan fish. They're tied on size 12 hooks.P3130133 (4).JPG

If I were fishing for carp I'd use something a bit larger. These are tied on size 6 and size 8 hooks.

the best source for mops is "mop slippers" on amazon. they come from china and smell of factory so don't expect them soon but it's around $4.80 or something for two slippers which is several hundred mops. I use chartreuse but I do have cream as well. Hope this helps!
